Canalba cream is used to treat fungal infections of the skin. It seems that your baby girl has an eczema rash on her face. Canalba will not help for this rash.Rather try using Epimax Junior cream twice daily on her rash. if she is not better after 10 days it would be best to take her to be seen by your doctor or clinic sister.
